69-GAME SPRINT STARTS TONIGHT
At 51-42 (.548), the Nationals begin the season’s 2nd “half” tonight with the first of 3 against the NL Central-leading Brewers...Washington is ostensibly tied for the NL East’s top spot, a percentage point ahead of the Braves (52-43, .547)...this is the 3rd time that the Nationals have entered the 2nd half with at least a share of first place in the NL East (2012: 49-34, .590, +4.0 over ATL; 2005: 52-36, .591, +2.5 over ATL).
BETTER LEATHER
The Nationals have made just 5 errors in 34 games dating to June 7 and yielded just 2 unearned runs in June to set a new club mark for fewest unearned runs allowed in a calendar month...as the season has progressed, the Nationals’ fielding percentage has risen while their error totals and unearned runs allowed have largely declined:
 MONTH FIELDING% ERRORS UNEARNED RUNS
 Mar./Apr. (28 games) .................... .975 26 19 May (26 games) ............................. .980 20 13 June (28 games) ............................ .994 8 2 July (11 games) ................................995 2 3
KEEPING SCORE ON THE SEASON
The Nationals lead the NL (3rd in MLB) run differential at +61 (387 for, 326 against)...MLB’s top 4: OAK (+145), LAA (+89), Washington (+61), SEA (+57).
SCORE 4 = WIN MORE
The Nationals are 42-3 when scoring 4 or more runs and, conversely, just 9-39 when limited to 3 or less runs by opposing pitchers.
SERIES BUSINESS
Dating to May 30, Washington is 9-2-2 (win-loss-tie) in series play, and 26-15 (.634) overall...3 of the 9 series wins were sweeps (3-0 vs. PHI, 2-0 vs. HOU, 3-0 vs. COL)...the Nationals’ home-and-home set with BAL is considered one series for this note.
NATIONALS STAFF EARNS GOLD OR SILVER IN MANY STATISTICAL CATEGORIES
Washington’s 3.08 staff ERA leads MLB (OAK is 2nd at 3.09)...Nationals pitchers also rank among MLB’s top 2 in these categories: fielding-independent pitching (first, 3.18), fewest earned runs allowed (first, 289), walks/9.0 inn. (first, 2.41), few-est walks (first, 226), SO/BB ratio (2nd, 3.33/1), homers allowed (2nd, 61), homers allowed/9.0 inn. (2nd, 0.65), stolen bases against (2nd, 30).
STOP THIEF!
Nationals catchers are tied for the MLB lead having gunned down 20 of 50 (40.0%) would-be basestealers this year (pitcher caught stealings excluded)...Washington is currently tied with the Cardinals (18 of 45) for MLB’s top spot...in ‘13, the Nationals ranked 29th throwing out 14 percent (15 of 110) of would-be basestealers.
LONG LINEUP
The Nationals lead the NL with 24 combined home runs from the bottom third (7th, 8th, 9th hitters) of the lineup...MIL and SDP are tied for 2nd with 22.
DINGERS FROM THE DIAMOND DIRT
The NL-best 53 homers hit by Washington infielders (14 from 1B, 8 from 2B, 14 from 3B, 17 from SS) this season rank 2nd in MLB behind only the Blue Jays (56) infield.
POWER FROM THE PIVOT
The Nationals are tied with COL for the MLB lead in homers (25) hit by middle in-fielders...17 of Washington’s 25 middle-infield home runs have been hit by short-stops (Ian Desmond 16, Zach Walters 1), 8 by second baggers (Danny Espinosa 6, Anthony Rendon 2).
WITH > WITHOUT
With Ryan Zimmerman in the starting lineup this season, the Nationals are 29-18 and average 4.8 runs per game (226 runs, 47 contests)...in 46 games sans Zimmer-man, Washington has averaged of 3.5 runs a game (161 runs, 46 games) and is 22-24.
BRIGHTEST STARS
In 10 National League seasons, of the 13 different All-Stars to represent the Nation’s Capital in the Mid-Summer Classic, only 3 have done so twice: RHP Tyler Clippard (2011, ‘14), OF Bryce Harper (‘12, ‘13), RHP Jordan Zimmermann (‘13, ‘14).
BETTER SAFE WITH SORI
With 197 jersey untuckings in the bag, Rafael Soriano is on the verge of joining MLB’s 200-career saves club, which is currently 44 deep...a closer look at Soriano’s current standing, as well as Fernando Rodney’s, who could join the list any day:

JULY 18 2006 -
 Alex Escobar’s RBI single with 2 outs in the 9th plated the game-winning run as the Nationals bested FLA, 7-6, in Miami’s (then) Dolphin Stadium. The Nationals trailed, 5-1, after 5 innings, but scored at least one run in the 6th, 7th, 8th and 9th innings. With the potential tying run on third base, Chad Cordero struck out Wes Helms and Jeremy Hermida (with the bases loaded) to finish off his 14th save.

SUMMER 2014 DC Public Library Summer Reading Program -
The Washington Nation-als Dream Foundation, as the presenting sponsor, provided a $4,000 grant to the DC Public Library’s Summer Reading program. The initia-tive provides students (aged 6-18) with baseball themed books and a Nationals Activity Book that concentrates on the areas of math, science and geography.

In addition, a number of Nationals players are scheduled to read to young kids at various libraries on July 19.
IN THE COMMUNITY
MILWAUKEE BREWERS
No current Nationals have ever played for the Brewers, but Jordan Zimmermann (Auburndale, WI) is a Badger State native...Zimmermann (2013, ‘14) is one of only 9 Wisconsin natives to earn All-Star status twice (Harvey Kuenn 8, Ken Keltner 7, Andy Pao 4, Ryne Duren 3, Al Simmons 3, Tony Kubek 3, Johnny Schmitz 2)...Washington and Mil-waukee are former AL cities that have evolved into NL towns...the Sen-ators (AL East) and Brewers (AL West) were AL rivals in 1970 and ‘71...the Senators won the 2-year AL series, 13-11...among NL ballparks, the Nationals (‘05-pres.) have endured their lowest winning percentages at Miller Park (13-21, .382), Dodger Stadium (6-20, .231) and new Busch Stadium (5-22, .185)...since MIL shifted to the NL, the Nationals/Expos and Brewers have played in 6 ballparks: Nationals Park, RFK Memorial Stadium, Olympic Stadium, Miller Park, County Stadium and Hiram Bi-thorn Stadium in Puerto Rico.
THE SERIES
After matching up 8 times in 2012 and 7 last year, the Nationals and Brewers play 6 times in ‘14...since ‘11, the Nationals are 2-0-1 in season series play against MIL (4-3 in 2013, 5-3 in ‘12, 3-3 in ‘11).
